Have you ever had that annoying drip, drip, drip of a faucet in your home? You know, the one that you just quite haven’t gotten around to fixing yet? Many of us do. It’s one of those lower priority items in everyday life. Life that gets busier and busier all the time. Repairing a faucet might seem like a simple thing to do. However, certain things these days, like a tub/shower faucet combination, are most likely more complex. Especially as the faucet designs keep improving over time. The leaks seem to get less frequent. But the repairs seem to get more complex! So, when it comes to a faucet repair service, who should you choose?
Different Types of Faucets
There are four types of faucets. They are compression, cartridge (sleeve), ceramic disk, and ball type.
A compression faucet relies on rubber washers to seal the valve seat. Rubber washers wear out and must be replaced occasionally. This is one of the easiest types of faucet to repair. Or at least in my opinion, it is. But you have to know what you’re doing. OR, you definitely need to have good instructions to follow. At the end of this article, you can find a couple different web sites that will provide DIY help on how to repair your own faucets.
You can always try it yourself. And if it doesn’t quite work out for you, then you can call us! As always, we will certainly be glad to help.
